RSReportDesigner.config Not Found in VS2010 Private Assemblies
Hello, I have VS2010 and currently installing Reporting Services 2008 (64 bit) and was expecting the RSReportDesigner.config and other config files and dlls to be installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies. But I dont happen to see them in there. Looks like it went into C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies. Is there any way to configure to install them at a desired path. If not then should I just go ahead and copy them from location X to location Y. Will they work okay? Thanks Jaitley

Hi Jaitley, The RSReportDesigner.config file stores settings about the rendering and data processing extensions available to Report Designer. The Report Designer is part of Business Intelligence Development Studio(BIDS). BIDS is a shell of Visual Studio. Currently, we only have the following BIDS: BIDS 2005(shell for Visual Studio(VS) 2005) BIDS 2008(shell for VS 2008) BIDS 2008 R2(shell for VS 2008) In other words, we don't have BIDS for VS 2010 currently. So, the RSReportDesigner.config won't be found in the VS 2010 Private Assemblies folder. This location is by design. Please don't move the folder to other location manually. If there is anything unclear, please feel free to ask. Thanks, Jin ChenJin Chen - MSFT

Hi Jin, Thanks for the answer. Any idea when should we be expecting BIDS 2010 (i.e. shell for VS2010). The reason I am asking this is because we are migrating our solution for custom assemblies used as data extensions from .net framework 2.0 to 4.0 for reporting services. We had done most of the work only to realize that SQL Services 2008 does not support .net 4.0 custom assemblies. Any timeline for the .net 4.0 support is appreciated. Thanks Jaitley

I have a related question. When I have BIDS 2005 and 2008, is there only one RSReportDesigner.config or would we have two copies of the file?
